Well the install should be the same for either the zhp knob or the BMW performance one. Just remember our stock knobs are connected to the shift boot so you have to pull em off together and separately remove the knob from the boot of you didn't get a new one. I got the bmw performance matching alcantera shift boot at well so ill just pull off the stock knob and boot together and throw those on. But you take em off the same way. Detatch the boot from the console and pull up on the knob and then just push the other one down on it. I think you thought I was talking about the performance short shift kit which I don't have. Just the knob and boot.
